The problem of the present: On simultaneity, synchronisation and transnational education projects


The current inclination, at the European level, to fund education in the form of projects radicalises the modern orientation towards the present as the attempt to bind a yet indeterminate future.

In an effort to sketch out the need for a new educational ecology, it then draws attention to how transnational projects articulate their educational meaning.
